Gas Station Employee Goes On Racist Tirade When She Hears Customer Speaking Spanish

Oh, strange, another racist Trump supporter! This time it was an employee at a Shell station in San Jose, CA who directed a racist tirade at Grecya Moran for committing the cardinal sin of (*checks notes*) speaking Spanish to another person in the United States.

Moran told KGO that a different Shell employee had greeted her in Spanish and Moran responded in kind. The two women were having a brief conversation in Spanish when they were interrupted by a white employee who insisted that they speak English.

“I even went up to her and I apologized,” Moran said. “I said, ‘Excuse me, I’m sorry. All she was saying is– she was greeting me in Spanish. How my day’s going.’ And she said, ‘I don’t care, you talk in English because this is America.’”

According to Moran, the woman told her that “Trump needs to hurry up and build the wall.”

It was then that Moran, who, mind you, had been holding her 18-month-old son through the entire confrontation, took out her phone and started recording. The employee gave Moran the middle finger and said, “F**k you.” She told Moran that she’s planning on quitting anyway, and then said, “You can do whatever the f**k you want because you’re not a citizen of the United States.” When Moran responded that she was born here, the unidentified employee (who, I have to point out, also sounds somewhat drunk) demanded proof (her exact words were “Prove it to me, motherf**ker”).

Moran posted the video on Facebook, whereit began to blow up.

Moran also made another Facebook post, this one with three videos (one is the one above, and the other two are short clips).

The employee was fired the same day the video was made and had only been working at the gas station for two orthree months, a manager at the gas station told KGO.

“I was born here, raised here, and I never thought in a million years it was going to happen to me,” Moran said. “I hear stories, I see videos but I never thought it was going to happen to me.”
